Hideous, a waste of time
26 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

This movie sucked in a way you don't see often. Luckily I watched this movie on my CRT screen instead of my HT beamer, so I did not spend any valuable bulb hours on this so called 'movie'.

I expected much more from Dick Maas, I cannot believe that there was budget to produce this movie, who in earth wants to invest in this beforehand, with such a poor script. Probably enough people were tricked and have seen this movie in the theatre making 'moorwijven' investment wise a success, I cannot imagine that the costs of this disaster where that high...

  • The story is very poor and not really original, I think Dick Maas was inspired by some dutch television series, like Gooische Vrouwen for instance.


  • Very bad acting (if there was any)


  • Special effects sucked big time, a character was shot in the hand, not only was it very obvious that the hand was a dummy, but also the size of the hand compared to the character was so out of proportion that it was (almost) funny to watch, although crying of my waste of time was more appropriate.


I do not recommend to see this movie at all, In fact we should forget that this movie has ever been made.
